"Our oldest daughter was ready to give up piano. We found Kevin four years ago. Our daughter  improved by leaps and bounds! She plays better that ever, and her comprehension is much more complete.

Our second daughter, six-years-old, started with Kevin two years ago. He has been very patient with her. Kevin has a way of talking to and teaching children music in a way that they can understand. We enjoy having him teach our children!

Thu N. (daughters aged 7-12)

"My 10 year old daughter wanted to play piano since she was 5, so we finally got her lessons elsewhere at 6. She was so excited, but after a year it got boring, and she wasn't learning much.

Then we found Kevin! He made learning music very easy and fun for her. Now she is always practicing.

Kevin is very welcoming and is great with my daughter. She loves him! He is really knowledgeable and passionate about music. We are very happy and satisfied with Kevin!

Judy T. (daughter age 10)

After 10 years of guitar lessons, my son wanted to learn to play the piano. We found Kevin online, and we couldn't be more pleased.

Kevin has extensive piano knowledge and skill, and has shown patience and humor in guiding my son's musical journey.

He's flexible with his time, and even provided virtual lessons via FaceTime during quaratine. My son continues to improve. We are very happy we found Kevin!

Sheba G. (son age 15)

"My boys have been taking piano with Db Music for over two years now. They had some piano lessons with a different teacher before. We saw the improvement immediately when we started working with Kevin. 

He worked on techniques, posture, and most importantly, reading music. I love Kevin's methods. His patience and precision are also great qualities when working with kids.

Luz M (sons aged 8, 10)

"We first got to know Kevin when two of our kids had taken piano lessons with someone else for a year and wanted to quit. We worked with Kevin for a month. Both children wanted to continue piano lessons after working with Kevin.

We decided to have Kevin teach all three of our children since Fall of 2019, and we've continued with online lessons during the recent months.

I highly recommend Kevin as someone I know who can keep children at different ages, levels of skill, and motivation to feel good about piano and develop at a pace that works for them.

Gabriel E. (children ages7, 9, 11)

My son has been coming to Kevin for a eleven months now. He's 6 and loves his classes. Kevin has so much patience and fun ways to keep kids entertained while learning. He plays the piano. I definitely recommend DB Music, look no further for a quality instructor! Great pricing as well.

--MariCruz C. (son age 6)

 Listen to what some adult students had to say about their lessons with Db Music and Dance.

I am an adult beginner piano player, and I have been taking lessons for about 8 months. The last 4 have been with Kevin, and I have progressed very quickly in that short time.

I wanted to take lessons from someone that could give me more than following the books myself or watching tutorials online, and Kevin gives me the feedback I need to quickly improve.

Kevin has helped me focus on the elements of playing that are important to my current ability, and has ensured that I have a solid base in the fundamentals that will help me as I progress in my playing.

I have improved quickly and remained motivated, but I have never felt overwhelmed. Jacob A.

Kevin is a gifted musician and teacher. He is attentive about taking time to have you learn the proper techniques whatever your goal in music is. 

I believe Kevin to be a thoughtful listener who knows how to communicate personally to each student so that they can grasp concepts at their level or speed while feeling encouraged.

He is patient and persistent, funny and meticulous with details; always covering all you need to know...You will definitely learn to play and read correctly ( and have fun & laugh!). Kevin is a rare find and I would gladly refer him.

Eileen B.

I highly recommend Kevin as a piano teacher. I have found him to be very competent and professional.

During my lesson he never makes me feel pressured or nervous, which I think is an important quality in a teacher. He has helped me understand some of the basic mechanics of playing correctly, which are much harder to master than one would think.

I always come away from my lesson feeling encouraged, and looking forward to practicing and playing better.
